on sunday, house minority leader nancy pelosi and majority leader eric cantor laid out the economic dividing lines. >> what we need is growth. we need growth with jobs. and if you have spending cuts, education of our children and other investments like the national institutes of health where you are hindering growth, you're not going to reduce the deficit. so it is almost a false argument to say we have a spending problem. we have a budget deficit problem that we have to address. we think the deficit and the national debt are at immoral levels. we think they must be reduced. we're sick and tired of paying interest on the national debt. and that's 15% -- that's a large percentage of the budget. >> the tax fight for the president means higher taxes, more revenue. again, we can't be raising taxes every three months in this town, david. and you know, the bottom line is we want tax reform, but we want to go plug thosepresident talks bring down tax rates because we think that's pro-growth and we can let the economy grow and let people earn more money and keep more of it. the president's not talkin
was government spending. ahead of healthcare and the economy. despite democratic leader nancy pelosi claiming to fox's chris wallace, washington does not have a spending problem. >> it's almost a false argument to say we have a spending problem. we have a budget deficit problem we have to address. >> now pelosi went on to claim that nothing brings more money in the u.s. treasury than investing in education. investing another word for spending. bret? >> bret: so, ed, what are we hearing if the president will tack the deficit in the speech? >> interesting, because today jay carney said he does believe there is a spending problem in washington. he seems to disagree with nancy pelosi a little bit. carney went on to say he believes the problem is with spending on healthcare. so something the president tried to tack with the affordable care act and carney went on to say the president doesn't believe the government is too big now. when you compare it to historic levels, sign he is not going all in on the deficit tomorrow night. he is going all in on new investments. >> bret: okay. ed henry live on t
not getting the spenting under control. bill: nancy pelosi says it's a false argument to say we have expanding problem. >> the president said something similar to speaker boehner. of course, we have spending problem. bill: speaker boehner has been on the opposite side of that for years now saying the president got cold feet when it came to getting big deal and not forced into sequestration. >> i think the president had a great hunt in october and early december to get a lot of these things out of the way and he chose not to. it's time for the president to lead. and we wouldn't be going from one crisis to another. when you refuse to lead you allow yourself to be defined by crisis. why is it we are constantly churching from one crisis to another instead of solving these problems. i'm ready to solve them now, i think we should have solved them last year. but we did increase taxes last year on the group the president said was the solution for solving the revenue problem. it's a big issue to handle. we'll catch up the hearing tomorrow. senator mccain suggests for every three retirees, replace one a
knows we need growth and nancy pelosi was talking, we need growth on the sunday shows and that was the message from mitt romney in the first debate where he did well and even conservatives start today say look at him, we like mitt romney. we didn't know if we loved him, but we love this guy. that's what he's talking about is growth and how you stimulate the economy. where has the growth been. the last quarter of last year, we went down and we contracted. we didn't grow at all we contracted and now the unemployment rate is when barack obama first took office at what point do the american people say, you aren't doing it? >> we're probably past that point in washington a long time ago. you referenced the poll and talked about pessimism and more and more talk about the new normal, an unhappy economy and that's the way that things are going to be, another poll or another question in that fox news poll. do you think that the president's stimulus worked in 2009? no, you don't think that it worked. he's proposing another round of this. i think at a certain point this becomes a
in washington. we have a health care problem. it cost too much. then we heard over the weekend nancy pelosi said on the chris wallace show, washington doesn't have a spending problem. do you agree that? >> no, i don't. i think washington has a tremendous spending problem. and the only way we're going to get the deficit in control is to cut spending and have comprehensive entitlement reform. it's unconclusionable to leave this kind of debt to our children and grandchildren and they would not have the same opportunities that we've had if we leave them with this extreme debt here. so we have to accept responsibility to do something about it. i think again that, what dr. carson was saying. >> steve: yeah. i know you're a democrat and you feel that way, but what about the members of your party in congress? it just seems like don, we love you, but we don't agree with that. >> i think there are many democrats democrats who do. if you look at president clinton's pen you're, his fiscal policy was much more to the center. >> steve: we thank you for joining us on this busy news morning. >> thank you. >> st
just happen to be the cities represented by congressional leaders nancy pelosi, john boehner. perhaps the most visible symbol of the damage caused by firearms is jim langevin. he had a gun accident as a police station where he was serving as a junior cadet. he's urged his colleagues on capitol hill to invite victims of gun violence to be their guests at the state of the union tomorrow. thirty democrats are planning to do so, with over 190 shooting on an average day in america, they should have no problem finding people who's lives have been scarred by guns. joining me tonight, it is my pressure to welcome from washington, d.c. jim langevin. welcome to the war room, thank you for being with us, head of this speech and head of your big idea. >> good evening. thanks for having me on the program. >> of course. tell me, what do you hope to achieve by bringing victims of gun violence to the state of the union? >> well, we're all touched and our hearts broken when we heard the news of what transpired in newtown connecticut. no one wants to see that happen again. we need to keep the focus on
rough on nancy pelosi please. give people hope. i hope that means you're going to crucify -- >> oh really? would you stop it? >> throw a bucket of water on her and see what happens. throw a bucket of water on her. i'll bet she melts. >> stephanie: wicked witch humor. okay. >> you know, i know he makes the rounds to drum up business for the sunday show which is dead last and always has been. but you know, he appears on a show like thafnlt he appears oh, stop it. why are you making those cracks? they do it all the time. chris wallace is supposed to be the last sort of serious journalist in the fox news umbrella. it is just embarrassing. >> stephanie: all right. well said. eric boehlert for media matters. see you next week, honey. >> all right bye. [ applause ] >> we will be on next week. next monday. i know is a holiday. we'll be giving you a fresh live show. >> stephanie: enjoy. >> sara in colorado. >> good morning, folks. how are you doing? >> caller: your nails are pretty too if i can put my 2 cents in. >> i have a couple of things. i don't want to take up your time. i want to get
with the economy? you've had nancy pelosi over the weekend saying the fact that we have a spending and debt problem is a false argument. you've got him disbanding the jobs council. so i'm not optimistic, but it does appear that he's going to pivot to the economy now. at this point he's starting to look like a ballet dancer, and i hope he makes the right decision. jon: andrew, do you agree the economy is the number one issue? >> no doubt about that. i do disagree with the issues that he talked about, i definitely believe that the economy is number one for the public, and that's where the president is going to focus tomorrow night. jon: well, if the economy is the number one thing, chris, he did get reelected, essentially, you know, on, well, i mean, mitt romney hammered him on the economy, and president obama still got reelected. >> well, he did. i don't know that he did a great job point out the challenges to the economy. we saw the economy start to rebound. but half of americans still believe we are in recession. so this could kind of be the nixon goes to china time for obama. if he were to reach
